    Info on "Dead mans hand"

    What is considered the dead man's hand card combination of today gets its notoriety from a legend that it was the five-card stud hand held by James Butler Hickok (better known as "Wild Bill" Hickok) when he was shot in the back of the head by Jack McCall on August 2, 1876, in Nuttal & Mann's Saloon at Deadwood, Dakota Territory. Reportedly, Hickok's final hand included the aces and eights of both black suits.[5]
    The make-up

    According to a book by Western historian Carl W. Breihan, the cards were retrieved from the floor by a man named Neil Christy, who then passed them on to his son. The son, in turn, told Mr. Breihan of the composition of the hand. "Here is an exact identity of these cards as told to me by Christy's son: the ace of diamonds with a heel mark on it; the ace of clubs; the two black eights, clubs and spades, and the queen of hearts with a small drop of Hic****'s blood on it."[6]
    Hickok biographer Joseph Rosa wrote about the make-up of the hand: "The accepted version is that the cards were the ace of spades, the ace of clubs, two black eights, and the queen of clubs as the 'kicker'."[7] However, Rosa said that no contemporaneous source can be found for this exact hand.[8] The solidification in gamers parlance of the dead man's hand as two pairs, aces and eights, didn't come about until after the 1926 publication of Frank Wilstach's book Wild Bill Hickok: The Prince of Pistoleers—50 years after Hickok's death.[1]

    Lemmy refers to the Dead Man's Hand in Ace of Spades, but we already have that song... more Motorhead perhaps?

    Aces and 8s are known as the dead man's hand.

    It's an old poker reference.

    Looking at the newsletter hint, one of the older DLCs is Alice in Chains. They're also in the 2014 library prior to the DLC.

    CIA backwards (matching the reversed image) is AIC (Alice In Chains)

    If we can figure out what's going on with the cave, I think we have a solution.
